‘Curiosity Has Turned Me Into An Aficionado From A Mere Survivor’ – Aditya Nagrare – Best 50 – Class of 2016

Aditya has been chosen as one of the top 50 most employable candidates across schools and programmes in India for the Class of 2016. He has one of the best 50 profiles among the candidates who participated in the Best50 competition.   

About Me I was the last candidate to get enrolled at IIM Indore. My journey to the Best 50 is filled with lots of failures and a very few successes, but large ones. Thanks to the fellow students for immense peer learning and competition, that has helped me bolster up my identity. As I walk this path, my aspirations have evolved to work in a global environment and I seek challenging, fast-paced roles. 


What have you done at your business school which makes you stand out from the crowd? Coming from a research background with a B.Tech. in Biotechnology Engineering, competing with the fellow management students stood as a big challenge, once. Overcoming the odds during this monolithic MBA, I was able to groom myself in Marketing and Analytics domain through my work in various industries alongside the academic curriculum, live projects and start-up trials. With these experiences during the MBA stint, I bring in an unique combination of knowledge and expertise in the Healthcare consulting sector with awards and recognitions for excellence apart from globally accepted and published work. Moreover, I have ample experience in people management, call it the event management as the Coordinator of the flagship IT Consulting event of IRIS- IIM Indore, Zero One Infinity, with participation of 400+ students. Last but not the least, 2nd year of MBA had been quite challenging and strenuous having worked alongside an upcoming marketplace  as a Partner.
My recognitions includes:
-Received PPI offer from GSK Pharmaceuticals for the summer internship project, 2015
-National Runner-up in “Best Summer Project Contest in Healthcare Industry” hosted by Brandcare Healthcare Comm.
-Campus Finalists of “Germ of an Idea” – RB Mavericks, a case challenge hosted by Reckitt Benckiser across the country
-National Runner-up in Intercollegiate Case Presentation contest in the Healthcare Industry
-Received Summer Research Fellowship from IISc, Bangalore given only to the top 5% applicants across the country
-3 international conference papers publication at IEEE -Awards and recognition in painting, short-film acting, trekking, and table tennis competitions 

If you were the Prime Minister of India, what would be the one problem that you would solve? Please explain your reasons. If I were the Prime Minister of India, I would solve the governance issues in India which indirectly resolves the ineffectiveness and inefficiency of the plans and policies that had been dominant ever since the independence. Right now, the India’s biggest problem is the incumbent governance mechanism, not the government or any other factor. Governance problem stems from the increasing inability to deliver public services in the face of rising expectations and the narrow perspective of the solutions which is further aggravated by the long policy approval lead time and their reversals. Examples like Vodafone’s acquisition of Hutchison Essar where the policy was retrospectively reversed, Novartis’ loss of INR 5000 Cr shows the uncertainty and curbs the further FDI into the country. The different takes of the State and Central government like the Enron’s entry in Maharashtra, the steep level of hierarchy causes bureaucratic procedures including corruptions. The way issues were handled in the past curtailed the growth for present and future. I believe for any major change to happen in India, this is where it all starts.   Meet the rest of India’s 50 Most Employable Management Graduates from the Class of 2016 here.
